Storm near Landshut (Bavaria): Lightning strikes the roof and triggers a fire

The storm * caused several damage in the Landshut area.

A roof structure on Hagrainer Strasse probably caught fire from a lightning strike.

“The fire fighters who were already on standby with several men on duty or in the guards and were therefore very quickly available, prevented an even larger fire,” it says.

However, part of the roof structure burned out anyway.

Storm in Bavaria: "At times true flash floods"

“During this storm *, the main affected by the rain was the Rosental between Falkenstrasse and the confluence with Bachstrasse. From the rear Rosental, which drains the entire area from the Birkenberg over the Buchberg to almost Mittergolding and Aign, real flash floods shot out from time to time, ”reports the fire brigade. The highest level of the water masses was around 70 centimeters above the tarred road. Properties to the left and right of the Rosennal were therefore massively affected by the ingress of water and mud. The emergency services estimate that the property damage in the affected buildings is likely to be considerable in some cases. (
